Salaam,

I am inshaAllah going on Umrah in a few weeks and I am looking for a book or two in English that would help me prepare, understand the rituals and do the ziyarat correctly. Can anyone advise me on books that they have found useful for Umrah?

Many thanks in advance!

Dear brother:

If you can reed urdu you may take the book of molana Muhammed Hussin Akbar

Name of book is Ehkaam e Hajj.You may get this book from any Minhaj ul Hussain library. just keep in mind that after performing ummrah you have to do one tawaf With the niyaah of tawaf e nisa(making 7 circles around Kaaba and performing salatul tawaf}.

Many books on the topic of umrah are discribing the umrah during hajj and in that umrah tawaf e nisa is not included.But the umrah you are going to perform is called umrah mufridah where after performing this one has to perform tawafe nisa

otherwise women of whole world will be harraam on him.

Plz remember me in your prayers. Allah hafiz

    • Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى himself has cursed different groups in Quran. Eg: Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 64:
      إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَنَ الْكَافِرِينَ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ سَعِيرًا Surely Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared for them a burning fire,
      (English - Shakir)
    • Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 7:
      هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are decisive, they are the basis of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding.
      (English - Shakir)
    • I think the verse which says " dont curse" و لا تسبوا is very clear and easy to understand. Shias dont need to insult their enemies because they have enough strong evidence to prove their faith. Insulting is immoral and unIslamic and it is what weak illogical people choose to do.
    • (54:22) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed?
    • Holy Quran is not easy to understand for it is not an ordinary book. There are mohkam and mutashabeh verses. You will find verses contradicting for different things but it isn't. Merely mentioning a part of the verse (that too without mentioning exact reference) doesn't help. For understanding the book of Allah we need guides from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. Each verses should be referred for it's Tafseer from Ahlulbait (ams).
